Hello there!General Kenobi

I’m Gabriele, currently Researcher and Software Engineer @ IDSIA. Here I’m trying to learn as much as possible while working on many different projects. Check my news list to see what I’ve been up to :)

I dream of employing my skills to help make someone’s life better. In particular, I would like to work either on rehabilitation systems or “accessible” interfaces for physically impaired people: i.e., restoring functionalities of people who have lost some; or making accessible stuff that is seldomly designed with accessibility in mind (e.g., board/video games, software, hardware of any kind, places, etc.). Maybe, one day, my brother and I will manage to play video games together again, as we did in our childhood :D
